Product Description

From the creators of the Command & Conquer franchise comes Highborn, a critically acclaimed casual turn-based strategy game.

In Highborn, players are offered two strategy games that combine an intelligent and tactical experience without the frenetic play of a traditional RTS. Players move forces around an overhead map to secure spells and combat support, then dive into 3D combat to deploy those advantages against an unsuspecting enemy. All the fun and fighting is set against an irreverent tale, filled with wacky heroes, witty dialogue, and wild assumptions.

Highborn features a unique blend of strategic movement and 3D combat that caters to a variety of gameplay styles and offers a great deal of replayability. Players unlock hero characters as they progress through the game, giving them access to different abilities and play styles, along with different strategies to use against their opponents.

For more information about Highborn, check out the Jet Set Games, Inc. Website, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube for videos.

Given that this game was from the old C&C guys I gave it a shot. So far it's funny, and the game play is far above what I've seen in other Android games. When our top games have been angry birds and gem miner it's pretty clear we lack strong titles (sorry angry bird fans!). It's a Turn Based game and will soon have multiplayer allowing android players to game with iphone friends. So for the amount of hours of fun for 99c.. how can you go wrong? Enjoy!

A pleasant joy to play. Simple controls that lead to solid tactical play. Quality graphics that look geat on my Galaxy S. Wish there were more quality games like this one. It is great to see Android getting more quality games.

Excellent graphics and high resolution.
Comedic dialog makes the story very engaging and far from final fantasy boring. Great tactical game all around... highly recommend!

I have this on my iPad as well as my iPhone and I've played it on Android. It is a very addictive game with good writing.

The best part of the game is that it is actually challenging and each level requires you to think and plan.

This is by far the best turn based strategy game I've seen on a mobile device and I can't wait for more content to come out.

Really enjoy this game, works like a dream on my X. Does drain my battery but totally worth it, knocks other games outta the park. Can't wait to see how multiplayer works out!

I was an iPhone user for many years, and loved playing this game on my phone from time to time. I finally got sick of Apple's antics and switched to an Android, depressed that I would miss Highborn. Not only is it now on Android, but it's prettier than it was on the iPhone! The engine could use a little optimization, as there was some very evident jerkiness (my phone is very speedy generally - Atrix). That doesn't detract to much from the silly dialogue, environment, and gameplay that led me to enjoy Highborn in the first place.
